The trade of Tom Seaver is one of the Mets' worst trades of all time

With the Mets pretty much allowing Jose Reyes to walk away from the only Major League organization that he had played for, it got me thinking about how many bad moves the Mets have made over the years.

Whether through trades or free agency, the Mets have had a history of making mistakes when it comes to importing and exporting talent.

The list of terrible free agent signings includes Roberto Alomar, Mo Vaughn, Oliver Perez, Luis Castillo, Kaz Matsui and the mother of all bad deals, Bobby Bonilla.

While he still has time to prove that his name doesn't belong on this list, recent free agent signing Jason Bay is looking likely to join the rest in Mets infamy.

As for trades, there have been some awful deals made over the last 50 years. To be fair the organization has acquired stars such as Mike Piazza and Keith Hernandez through trades. For this list, however, we'll go through the top 10 worst trades in chronological order.
